Moin,
|    1. Is it possible, that ices updates Metadata (Artist ? Track) to the
|       icecast Server in playlist mode?

I run ices2 and it updates metadata flawlessly.

|    2. Is there any possibility of controlling ices2 by a webinterface
|       with functions like nextrack, stop and play, switching live stream
|       and playlist?

Write a cgi script that sends Signals to ices2 (SIGUSR1 etc.)
more or less a "one liner" bash script would do.

|    3. Does anybody know a tcl script for eggdrops that can read and put
|       out icecast2 Stream informations?
nope, but you could check if there are RDF/RSS scripts for it. I have a
xslt that outputs a valid RSS. Or write your own output type xslt and
use some other eggdrop script.

|    4. Are there any other player which are better for a mixed
|       Playlist/Live Stream Server ?
you could use xmms with some plugins. YMMV. I prefer ices.

regards

Thomas
